you work for BI?
With more than
550 members, the online group of former BI staff
is flourishing. Members' service in BI spans more than 30 years,
up to the company's extinction in 1972, and membership embraces
sea and shore staff from most of BI's areas of operation.
in the group is lively and covers many topics dear to the hearts
of BI people, including ships, friends and old shipmates, reminiscences
and the like.
who worked on staff for BI, or immediate family of BI staff*,
Marconi radio officers who served in BI ships*, people who worked
for shipping agencies closely connected with BI*, may apply to
join the group. If
you are not familiar with internet forums or mailing
lists, the idea is that messages are posted by members of the
group to the 'board'. Members of the group can then see all
the messages (either delivered by email to their mailbox or available
at a protected website) and in that way discussions
on various subjects can ensue. It's a great way for a far-flung
group like the BI crowd to stay in touch.
